The Early Years programme at Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi values Chinese culture and encourages our students to celebrate Chinese festivals and traditions. This can be witnessed through our wide range of cultural celebrations throughout the year such as Mid-Autumn Festival, Chinese New Year, the Lantern Festival as well as residential trips, excursions and tours. 

Whether it is large events, or small activities such as parents and grandparents teaching our students to make mooncakes, we provide students with opportunities to understand Chinese traditional culture and customs. Understanding the world is a specific area of learning in the Early Years framework. This starts with understanding ourselves and who we are. By embedding the our local context deeply within the programmes of learning, our children learn to appreciate the many facets of Chinese culture and assimilate them as a proud part of their identity. This is a celebration of who we are and where we live, and this helps our students from the youngest age to become global citizens who Graduate Worldwise.
